Dress: Minnie's Menagerie; Shoes: Marshals; Broach: Grandma's 
Well lovely readers, I thought since I have not yet had time to take any new pictures since starting this semester I might as well take the opportunity to share some old pictures with you all. These pictures document my two adventures over the last two years in the quaint town of Round Top (about an hour away from where I live). 
To introduce the purpose of these adventures, we must start at the beginning. The only reason we traveled to this Round Top (both times) was for a big square dance that our (my sister and I) club was invited to. However, we could not pass up the opportunity to explore the town and places around it. We had a family friend who is a photographer and she mentioned a lovely spot she had discovered. Well, lets just say that this
             spot is was very magical (to me at least) and reminded me of something from a fairytale.

These pictures were taken back in 2013 (ages ago) and that was when I had bangs:) Anyways, there is a house which has this amazing stone bridge (above picture) which crosses a river/pond, but at that particular time it was dry, so we were able to take pictures under it. They also have a wonderful garden with a tower that reminds me of Repunzel.

All in all, the day was fabulous and full of adventures and perfect picture spots, including a number of red British telephone booths!!!

This past summer, we traveled to Round Top again, and this time on the way we stopped off at this enchanted creek with some dear friends to take a few pictures. I must say that we look somewhat like characters from a fairytale ourselves:)

However, I was unfortunately the one who decided to wear a splendid red skirt, not even considering that I would stick out like a "sore thumb" in every single picture. But nonetheless, this spot proved to be picture perfect!

After capturing our fare share of shots at the stream, we headed to Round Top and captured some even more enchanting pictures.

All in all, the day was wonderful, and these spots are some of our most favorite places to capture pictures!!
I hope to post some pictures next week of one of my newest ensembles that I made for school. 
Until next time!

What is one of your favorite places to take pictures?


  1. What a positively magical place! That would be such a dream location to do a photoshoot. And Madison, I think your outfit provided a nice contrast to all the beiges and light colors of the other girls' outfits.

    1. I am sure you all would love this spot for your pictures:)

  2. So positively pretty! And if you were a sore thumb, you were the loveliest sore thumb I've ever seen ;) In fact, I think your outfit added to the whimsical/eclectic feel of the photos. Love it!
